The very first time I ever watched Todd Bentley I thought he was a former biker or gang banger, who after a very difficult life found Jesus. Look at the guy and tell me you wouldn’t have thought this yourself. I thought he was a guy who sat under some bad teaching and simply fell for it….as MOST of us have been guilty of during our walk with Christ. I’m learning more and more about this fellow during the last few days and what I’ve discovered about this self appointed “revivalist” disturbs me greatly…..
Pruning Time….a video by Patricia King about Todd Bentley’s dark period where Bentley claims to have seen Jesus….this was a time where Bentley was struggling…..Bentley refers to this as a “dark night of the soul”….notice the tattoos and piercings…..
Now compare how Bentley looks in the following video….shot prior to this “dark night of the soul”….notice what Bentley doesn’t have…..
The following link shows Bentley tattooed and pierced and approximates all this desecration around 2005 or so….after the 18 month “dark night of the soul” Bentley alleges to have gone through….
Prior to Bentley’s “dark night of the soul” Bentley lacked tattoos or piercings…..then the craziness started…..and I’m beginning to wonder what type of “spirit” has invaded this man’s mind body and soul….
Ok….so Bentley decided to paint and pierce himself AFTER being in full time ministry….and after his alleged “dark night of the soul”….and for the life of me I can’t figure out why a Christian….let alone a minister…..would mar his flesh in the manner that he has done…..when Scripture is clear about this issue?
Lev 19:28 (ESV)
You shall not make any cuts on your body for the dead or tattoo yourselves: I am the Lord.
There are other events that have caused me great concern like the involvement of Paul Cain and Bob Jones .These two fellows have had serious moral issues in the past that can’t be neglected and should NOT be ignored. Why anyone would desire to be mentored or discipled by these two is anyone’s guess.
Serious red flags are waving here….yet people are willingly ignoring the warnings…avoiding good practical common sense…and flocking to what appears to be nothing more then manipulation and deceit brought about by unclean spirits masquerading as angels of light.
Wake up people! Run from these masqueraders and don’t look back! Please don’t allow these people to lay hands on you or pray for you or whatever they are claiming to do in the name of God! You are subjecting yourself to something you don’t want any part of…and risking your eternal soul in the process!
